Elotes at home…

Well, not my home because I sadly lack a real grill, but my parents have a decent one and it was packed with their own Sconnie-influenced selections of boring burgers, dogs and brats this past weekend. My sister and I had to infiltrate with a few dishes of our own, and elotes (Mexican corn on the cob), was just one of them. I love this creamy, spicy snack and have gushed about them before. I hoped for fresher corn, but grilled up what I had and slathered it with a mix of mayo and fresh lime juice and the sprinkled it with Mexican cotija cheese, chile powder, ground red pepper, cumin and salt. Throw in my mother’s cheesy Independence Day paper plate action and we had ourselves a fourth of July.
